Russian weather forecasters said that in the coming week in the capital region the weather is expected to be lower than usual for the beginning of June. This point of view, in particular, was expressed in an interview with RT by the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center Roman Vilfand.
The forecaster drew attention to the fact that last Saturday, June 3, the weather was "very uncomfortable" and the temperature corresponded to the first decade of April. According to him, "any weather after that will seem better."
"Speaking more objectively, the weather over the next week as a whole in terms of temperature background will be below normal. This is due to the fact that the air masses will move mainly from the north and northwest and will be moderately cool. Almost all working days, the temperature background will be about two degrees below normal, "said Vilfand.
According to him, the only exception will be Wednesday, on this day the temperature is expected in the range of + 20 ... + 25 ° C.
The forecaster also said that from Monday evening the pressure will begin to rise, which will create conditions for the absence of heavy precipitation.
"Mostly without precipitation, with partly cloudy skies. The weather will be cool for June, but sunny. The temperature background for most days, except, as I said, Wednesday, is predicted in the range of + 18 ... + 22 ° C, "the RT interlocutor added.
Vilfand also cited preliminary calculations, according to which another slight decrease in temperature is expected by the next weekend, the maximum values will be kept in the range of + 16 ... + 19 ° C.

"Yesterday and today, the two coldest days, are over. Slowly, the warmth will return. There will be partly cloudy with variable rain, but the temperature will gradually rise, "he said in an interview with an RT correspondent.
According to the weather forecaster, on June 5, a temperature of about + 20 ... + 21 ° C is expected during the day and about + 7 ... + 11 ° C at night.
